Can this really be the only comment?
26 March 2005 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

Seriously, can this really be the only comment? This was a short-lived TV show but it was from a very good, popular movie. I just watched the premiere episode today on an old tape I dug up and it really wasn't that bad. In fact, this had the basics of a popular long running show. The first thing, this was a 60 minute serio-comedy, not a 30 minute sitcom (with laugh track) as reported here on IMDb. If anything this show was either ahead of it's time and/or just ill-timed. But a meaty one hour format with a large ensemble cast (this one spanning 4 generations) with thoughtful relevant writing seems to be the way things have gone since then if you think about it. Looking backwards at this one it had a pretty nifty cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Thora Birch, David Arquette and of course Ed Begley Jr. If you ever see an episode you'll recognize some of the other faces too. Maybe the problem was the "Parenthood" name. A whole new name and tack might have given this show the extra push it needed to build a little following. I doubt if this show will ever rear it's head again but I thought it was good enough to warrant AT LEAST ONE COMMENT!
